the question today, five days out from the election, this is an obama task force, is the timing suspect? what do you think? >> well i'm certainly not going to defend the timing. better markets has been calling for accountability on wall street for a long time. in our view just like the law is applied on main street it should be applied on wall street. frankly if this task force really doing what it should have done complaints like this should have been filed a long time ago. charlie knows well because he did a lot of reporting on this, these allegations there are two big complaints. ambac, the insurance company and fhfa filed prior complaints detail egregious conduct by the bear stearns people. melissa: if they're legitimate, why now? you're saying should have been done a while ago, they suddenly woke up now five weeks ahead of the election and decided to go after banks? >> i think these questions are legitimate. i think it is a grave disservice to the american people. the american people are entitled to the law being applied to wall street. it shouldn't be done in context where their motives

the employees before election day, but not so fast. obama administration says warning workers in the next few months is inappropriate. even saying that government will pick up some company legal bills in case layoff workers sue because their bosses failed to give them enough warning. republicans charge the administration is trying to prevent voters in swing states from getting layoff notices days before the election. in a letter to the office of management and budget, republican senator john mccain, kelly aott and lindsey graham say president obama put his own re-election ahead of the interest of working american. and obama administration is cynically trying to skirt the warn act to keep american people in dark about the looming national security and fiscal crisis. now other republicans are demanding the legal justif justification for the move. there is political uncertainty surrounding the cut and the pentagon says it's not even fully planning for them, preferring that congress reverse them. they say the automatic cut will be gradual. >> what would be affected is the awarding of new contract
in the presidential election. >>> president obama's campaign is organizing a massive effort to host more than 3,200 debate watch parties wednesday night. politico reports the campaign also hopes to recruit volunteers to help get out the vote in november. >>> and mitt romney's wife, ann, went head to head with first lady michelle obama in "family circle" magazine's 2012 presidential cookie bake-off. well, it was a very close vote between the two candidates' wives, but the winner is michelle obama's white and dark chocolate chip cookies. by only three percentage points over ann romney's m&m cookies. and that's your morning dish of "scrambled politics." >>> and now here's your first look at how wall street's going to kick off the day. the dow closed at 13,515 after adding 77 points yesterday. the s&p was up 3, but the nasdaq lost 2. taking a look at overseas trading this morning, in tokyo, the nikkei fell 10 points while in hong kong, the hang seng was closed again for a holiday. >>> well, stocks ended mostly in the black monday thanks to a glimmer of economic optimism. news that manufacturing gro
seen the documents where he says, give me money so i can block the obama agenda. elect meso i can be a part of the check on president obama. we also have his voting record. it was noted that of the first 32 votes on breaking filibusters when scott brown was in the senate, he voted with his republican colleagues 30 of the 32 times. he will try hard to disemable. the notion he hasn't made up his mind for majority leader is one of the least honest things i have heard said. and he's going to have the -- this is going to be his serious bump. he's going to vote to make the most right wingers -- in power, a man who would be destructive in any effort. i don't see any way for him to credibly deny he is what he is. there was a republican member of the state legislature. he's a lifelong politician. not that there's anything wrong with that. he was never seen as a moderate or an independent. he was a conventional republican. he understands that to survive in massachusetts, he has to give the appearance of independents, but as i said, it comes across as incoherence. >> barney frank of massachu
. the biggest danger for obama is that he has the most to lose here because the election seems to be going his way. and therefore, if he's too cautious he will look too laid back and might let romney, who can be ferocious in these things, as we saw in the newt gingrich debate. but there's so much damage to undo about himself for romney before he gets to obama. the 47% comment and the whole image of somebody who doesn't care about the middle class and only the rich. he has to use the debate to repair that and only then can he pivot to obama, which is why he needs a long strategy. >> the last point is right. it's a difficult match between the venue, the medium in that debate and what he needs to accomplish, which is about seeming like a guy who cares about the middle class. there's ways to do that in ads and staging and all sorts of other things. hard when you're standing next to the president. but that's the distance he needs to to go. e.j.dionne, great to have you here. >> nice to see you. >>> it's political debate season to be sure. massachusetts senator scott brown and elizabeth warren just
compare this to? i think the night barack obama was elected president there was electricity in the air. since then almost four years i think this is the next best thing really. it's been quite a night here. >> earlier we were talking about all the fans still inside. from your perspective does it look like almost everyone has cleared out now heading home? >> reporter: pretty much. duane, show them these folks. this is one of the employee exits. you've got some folks who work the game who bought some merchandise. they're dancing thumbs up hanging out having a good time. really most of the fans have made it home, but just the folks who worked here. how you doing, okay? yeah, near good. it's been a heck of -- they're good. it's within a heck of a night and we're seeing a lot of people who work here leaving with shopping bags with shirts and hats. >> bob barnard, thank you so much for giving us the perspective outside there with the fans. speaking of fans, our facebook fans overwhelmed with excitement now that the nats clinched the division title, many leaving congratulatory messages on ou
of the locations. and what i get in reading -- the probability of president obama being elected is only about 3%. and for some, it is only 1%. the idiocy that this man has flown -- excuse me for not using correct format -- >> john: that's okay. >> caller: the american people, doesn't care. they don't care. it doesn't seem like anything -- that this man says, romney, is makes any difference. the possibility of obama being elected is minimum. the possibility he may not even be elected. what i would like to know, what are the democrats doing? why is this situation -- it doesn't make any difference what this man is doing? >> john: well, sure, the democrats are doing a lot. they're getting the facts out. obama's rapid response team on his campaign out of chicago is doing a great job of knocking down the silly stuff that mitt romney says and really, vicky they're doing things like having folks like you be volunteers which is the smartest thing they could do. let me ask when you're calling people in other states or battleground states,
the republicans run was not a good preparation for general election this year. anyway, in swing states the obama campaign has bombarded voters, as you said, with this powerful ad going after romney for his 47% putdown. let's take a look. >> 47% of the americans who vote for the president who are dependent, who believe they're victims, who believe the government has to care for them, who believes they're entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it, and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not to worry about those -- i'll never take care of them. they should take care responsibility and take care of themselves. >> you look at this analytical, only three or four breaks, romney would be ahead right now, breaks going to obama's side. the romney performance overseas when he blew that thing with cameron. the masterful performance by bill clinton where he reset the clock on the economy. of course, this 47%. these breaks have been going toward obama, haven't they? i mean, i can't think the last time romney got a break. >> reporter: no, really not since -- you have to go
is in war mode. they want president obama re-elected, because he's the most leftest president, and he's the nonracist, because that makes them feel good about themselves. the only nonracist toward america. the polls are never wrong toward us. never! they're trying to create the florida panhandle in the 2000 election. remember when they called florida for gore, the polls were still open, and people didn't come out and vote. i don't understand the phenomenon, if i heard my guy was losing, that would make me rush out more to the polls. apparently people like to vote for a winner. this is all a crock. the exit polls in 2004, we were all depressed at noon that day because of the exit polls. >> sean: it was 3:00. >> i talked to you. >> sean: cheney called my radio show at that point. >> everyone was on-air. you could see it, even though you guys weren't releasing it, i think drudge was, all the faces on fox news, the conservatives were very, very long, very sad. turns out it was completely wrong. they always have an excuse for it. we sent out female graduate students. they only talked to de
between the time obama was elected president and the time he was inaugurated, republicans met at least twice, the leadership met at least twice to hatch a plan to just, you know, obstruct the incoming president no matter what. even though the economy was falling off the cliff it was all about obstruct him in 2009, to take back the house or both chambers in 2010 and win the white house in 2012. no matter what they didn't want president obama to succeed. they saw it as a success for him rather than a success for the country. >> i questiguess the question t have or quotes that will haunt him, the closing of guantanamo, comprehensive immigration reform. the problem with all that is the answer is republican stood in the way, didn't want to play ball, which you could say a fair assessment but does it sound after you have the same answer to each question, does it sound whiney? >> i think because the american people went through it with the president and watched the agonizing process on health care it does resonate. the closing of gitmo, the vote was like 96-4. democrats didn't go along with i
a memo to supporters about what 2012 would look like if obama was elected. well, first a prediction about the boy scouts of america. here they are. the boy scouts no longer exist as an organization. they chose to disband rather than be forced to obey the supreme court decision that they would have to hire homosexual scoutmosters. no, actually, the boy scouts are still going stlong. next, the prediction on gun laws. it is illegal for private stens to own guns for self-defense in eight states and the number is growing with increasing democratic control of state legislatures and govships. wrong. again, the second amendment is still intact and the number of new gun laws enacted by the obama administration adds up to exactly zero. finally, the prediction about how the president would respond to captured terrorists. quote, terrorists captured overseas are given full trials in the u.s. court system, and they have to be allowed access to a number of government secrets to prepare their defense. well, actually government secrets to prepare a defense, i don't think so. here is a secret for you, the
those layoff notices delivered just days before the election. >> president obama downplaying expectations for wedneay's debate. saying he is an okay debater, according to a new washington post abc news poll, 55 percent of likely voters think that president will win this first debate, and 41% think that romney will win. joining me now, ed klein, author of "new york times" best seller "the amateur." great to see you, this is cute, the downplay, one of these, i can't think of another moment of modesty on the part of this president other than this example of trying to manage expectations. >> the golden-floated orator is bumbling,. lou: the idea he is such a heavy favorite to win the debate, that has to work in governor romney's favor. >> almost 6 out of 10 americans think that obama will take this debate, romney goes in as under dog with low expectations, if he does well, he will exceed those expectations. i think he has a good chance of winning this debate. lou: what about, you made it clear, you are not overly impressed with the mr. obama's capabilities, he is no bill clinton i

the election small ball with obama. what do i mean about that? he has the slogan of the week, hit and run attacks. instead of making more general arguments that the media which are not inclined to be nice to romney and inclined to ignore stories that are harmful to obama, the media would then have to report. give you a concrete example middle east policy around the world. embassy aflame. al qaeda flags hoisted over more embassies. you have this whole thing clearly the obama policy so does romney seized opportunity? no. he a one off attack. a correct attack i would say on the statement issued by the cairo embassy which was a grabbling apology. he rans away with it. what he should have done is to give a speech to make the argument that the grabbling argument from the cairo embassy was simply one example of the way that obama and the administration have treated the middle east as a way to say we're really nice to you if we try to sweet talk them out of their weapons, if we refuse to support the revolution against the campaign, lead from behind in the area we are going to be liked and everyth
way the presidential election is. can mcmahon divide the voters in connecticut who would be for obama but willing to vote for a republican senator? >> that was a fascinating analysis. north dakota, republicans thought they had this in the bag when kent conrad decided he was not going to run for re-election. has heidi heitkamp's liableability making this a horse race? >> she has issues that are a big concern. it's got a ton of republicans nervous. what republicans thought might be an easy check is not such an easy check. >> you have so many of these races that are first. utah republican congressional candidate mia love could become the first black woman republican elected to congress if she beats democrat chris matheson. >> mia love is an unbelievable candidate. she is a gop dream in many ways. she is a mom, she's young, african-american, mormon. there is not a box you can categorize her in that fits the gop stereotype. she is a rule breaker. they love that. she plays well in the state. she is the mayor of saratoga springs. she has a good track record. her opponent is painting her as a
-american rhetoric says he hopes mr. obama wins the presidential election. he called mr. obama "a good guy." his comments could be a sign that he's looking for a better diplomatic relations with the u.s., the top buyer of venezuela's oil. >>> in eastern afghanistan, the taliban launched a deadly attack on u.s. forces. a suicide bomber rammed a motorcycle packed with explosives into a joint u.s./afghan patrol killing 14 people including three americans. today's attack comes after a deadly weekend on american forces pushing the u.s. military death toll to over 2,000 since the start of the 11-year war. in recent months, many killings have been insider attacks. that prompted the u.s. military to suspend joint operations between u.s. and afghan forces but today most of those operations have resumed. 31 americans have died this year from afghan forces killing u.s. forces. >>> syria's foreign minister made strong accusations today saying the turmoil was the fault of the u.s. and its allies. he made that statement in front of the u.n. general assembly. he said the u.s. supports terrorism because it's ba

? that they think president obama is getting re-elected? >> yes, you have key republican donors many in new york, i know a lot of big money guys here. that money, from what i understand, is starting to be diverted to the house and senate races. that is not good news for mitt romney. >> cenk: there you have it on fox business saying it is over. they're diverting the money. we were going to count for you how many days it took before the recommendation gave in, and it turns out it only took 14 days after the tape was released showing mitt romney's 47% comment. that's when we start started the "countdown." it's already over. rich owners saying this guy cannot win let's at least try to save the senate and the house. damn that hurts. this is the reason why. right now "huffington post" with the announcement if the election was held today, when would be the likely outcome. he only needs 270 to win. even the associated press, which is much more conservative has president obama has 271 already locked up, which means he would win the election. romney is only at 206. furthermore the associated press says in o
bill. so is president obama pledging taxpayer money to push this back until after the election to give himself political cover? joining us is haley barbour. welcome, governor. why is he doing this. >> the law is clear, because the sequestration, companies are going to make layoffs, they have to give notice. the obama administration is telling, don't tell anybody you're going to get laid off because what's happening in the administration, but they go beyond that and say not only don't comply with the law, but we'll make the taxpayers pay your legal bills. i mean, it's outrageous. it really is. >> greta: i pulled up old numbers, like for fannie mae where we paid legal bills, three people, $99 million. there's no policing of the lawyers. there's no reason the taxpayers should pay one dime in this instance for the defense contractors. where does the president get the authority to pledge our money to pay legal bills for breaking the law? >> well, obviously he doesn't have that authority. simply does not have that authority. but, you know, you talk about this egregious violation where they'r

-to-head debates in a general election format. that's been president obama. governor romney hasn't. >> reporter: during the primaries romney demonstrated he can stumble. as he did trying to bet rick perry big money at one debate. >> rick, i'll tell you what, $10,000? $10,000 bet? >> reporter: but romney is no debate lightweight here taking down newt gingrich's idea for a moon colony in florida. >> if i had a business executive come to me and say they wanted to spend a few hundred billion dollars to put a colony on the moon, i'd say you're fired. >> reporter: while romney stays behind closed doors, he's fine tuning his message softening his position on immigration. allowing the children of undocumented workers to stay in the country until immigration reform is passed. he's also out with a tough new ad linking president obama to former house speaker nancy pelosi. >> who will raise taxes on the middle class? barack obama and the liberals already have. >> reporter: fresh ammunition for tomorrow night's debate at an event earlier today in charlotte, north carolina, wolf, biden said how can the romne
change the apparent course of the election which you look at the thing nationally and it appears to be a pretty tight race. if you look at it in the key states. president obama appears to be ahead nearly everywhere. and by a significant margins in some places such as ohio where it's several points. now, you can't say that it's over. it certainly is not straight line projections are very dangerous in politics. things can change. always on the lookout for something to change it debate might much although it hasn't happened very often. >> bill: i think it's going to happen this year one way or the other. this is the stat that i will point to the rat muffin poll has the president up by three which is good news by the president. has had romney up most of the other polling polling times however when asked are you definitely going to vote for your guy? definitely 43% in the rasmussen poll say yes for romney only 42 for barack obama. i believe if mitt romney does well and can sting the president like ronald reagan stung jimmy carter that he will immediately become the frontrunner and the
